AMD Ryzen 3000 Series desktop processors were initially launched at CES 2019. A lot of the SKUs announced back then have made their way into the Nepali market. In this post, we will be discussing the major features of the AMD Ryzen 3000 series desktop processors along with the price and availability in Nepal.
AMD Ryzen 3000 CPU Overview
Built on a 7nm process, the 3rd Gen Ryzen processors use Zen 2 core architecture and are the first to support PCI 4.0 standards. These processors, codenamed “Matisse”, are compatible with the AM4 sockets and X570 PCH.
The Zen 2 architecture based on the 7nm process from TSMC was first seen on AMD’s high-performance server processors. Compared to Zen+, this architecture provides better power efficiency, a huge leap on IPC, and improved clock speeds. However maximum core counts and frequency weren’t announced as AMD is yet to finalize them. They did announce at least a 15% improvement over its previous generation.
